Period of Adjustment (1962)
The utters of Fonda and Hutton chanted high. Tony Franciosa kept the octaves low and his charisma forward. John McGiver sets and Mabel Albertson resists becoming the in-law stereotype. They glorified it. Lois Nettleton steals it because she could.
Marriage is deemed a terror, everyone screams their heads off until a surprise gift changes it. It has a loud message but you can still hear it.
Unfortunately, George Roy Hill's absurdity didn't allow Tennessee to be tragic. It's what the writer did best. 03-Jan-2019
Bad Teacher (2011)
So mean that it renders the characters inhuman. 07-Dec-2018
Fist Fight (2017)
Instead of expounding on the challenges of education they blast the ridiculousness of adult immaturity. The overload of stereotypes swats the funny. 23-Nov-2018
Ornithologist, The (2016)
I can admire nature and ogle the choice of men but the film required an explanation. 19-Nov-2018
The idea to affright pranksters holds steady. As soon as it realizes it can't scare us it lurches towards disgust. 17-Nov-2018
Zombie keeps the film soiled as the mythology of Michael Meyers becomes discombobulated and exhausted. 12-Oct-2018
Trash art elevated by high energy, cliche improvements, professional visibility (actors,) Alexandre Aja (director) and Nicotero's (make-up) enthusiasm. 08-Oct-2018
The act is porny, the conversations are ear splitting but the elevator has a wicked sense of humor. 27-Sep-2018
Parents of the year contend with a rude awakening. Just when Nicole's volcano of talent erupts the movie blindsides us with an inconclusive fate. 24-Jul-2018
Love Liza (2002)
The movie never lets up its depressive state. Hoffman digs so deep and personal that its hard to withstand the character he ascribes. He has a mental illness beyond depression and his unwillingness to move forward after tragedy hints that what he mourns was not deserved. Anything eventually would have rendered him dependent and his wife knew that. 20-Jul-2018
Collector, The (2009)
Schooling for psychopaths on how to execute an ugly death. It's bloody torture. 20-Jun-2018
Indian in the Cupboard (1995)
The effects hold up better than the story. Lonely boy gets fantastical gift that brings toys to life and extols him godlike qualities and judgment.
I don't understand how casting dominion over an American Indian's life progresses the man or the child. The life-toys don't get a life ending which asserts that they were only playthings for an unseen boy.
The story asks us to dispense with logic more than we're capable. 14-May-2018
Better Watch Out (2016)
The idea is terrifying because the reality is. The film tests you and deplores you but you keep hanging on. We want to feel that the torture endured will dignify an ending release. The balls hang low. 30-Apr-2018
All The Boys Love Mandy Lane (2006)
Boys lead with their penises and girls shake them until the power is transferred to them. The deaths cut with cruelty as the end bolsters surprise. 27-Apr-2018
King Kong (1976)
Jessica overcame it, Jeff squishes what he can from unkempt, the effects now match the script (awful) and Kong is perverted. It's beautiful score deserves a better movie. 18-Apr-2018
